“Decent Hotel for the Price, Not a Great Location”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

This hotel was charming and colorful (literally). The room was clean and cozy,and the bathroom was small (even by European standards). One of the things I really didn't like was that there was no safe in the room, my other complaint was that breakfast was an additional 12euros, which is a lot for a coffee and a croissant. Better value to go to the actual boulanger yourself and get the croissant fresh for 1 euro. The location is not ideal for doing the typical touristy stuff, but there are actually a lot of great neighborhood restaurants to check out.

Room Tip: Ask for room 42. It is on the top floor, and while the view directly out the window is not great, i...

The rooms are small, but cute and furnished cleverly, with good taste and attention to detail. Personnel is VERY friendly and provides a welcoming atmosphere and a satisfying breakfast. Especially night clerk Didier is fun and will always be offering you a tea at midnight, when you come home from your strolls around the lively neighbourhood the hotel is located in. Handling every situation with charme, you can not even be angry if something goes wrong … if you are concerned about safety: the fire alarm in the hotel works very well, you will be absolutely safe if a real fire should occur!

The rooms are very clean, everything you need is provided. The street the hotel is located in is relatively quiet, so you can sleep with an open window, if you like to do that. Enjoy your stay! I would always come again to this hotel for a romantic trip with my lover :)

I stayed here for my first night in Europe following a lengthy flight, and this was exactly what I needed. Excellent customer service, very comfortable bed, and a wonderful warm shower.

I did not catch their names, but all 3 staff who I dealt with were extremely helpful, particularly the well dressed gentleman who loaned me a travel adapter and answered all my questions quickly and easily.

The room itself was great - very comfortable bed, TV that I didn't use, and a compact bathroom, but with a great shower (lots of pressure, and nice hot water).

The only downside was that breakfast was a little on the pricey side (about 11 euros) but was only a small selection of pastries/breads, fruit and yoghurt, but given it was the Easter weekend most shops nearby were closed, and I was hungry!

Cute hotel, friendly staff, great location and comfy rooms, what more do you want?
I only stayed here one night as my previous hotel was sold out. I really liked my previous hotel, until I realized what I was missing, the warmth and friendliness of the human touch! Adrien and Didier were both warm and lovely every time I encountered them. They were both genuinely interested in making my stay pleasant and offered help and suggestions if needed. At this point I'd been staying in the area for a week, so I had my routine down, but it was nice to get to chat with some nice locals.

My room was a single and I got it at a good rate. Despite being a single room, it was spacious for me. I even had room to do my evening exercise routine. The bathroom was compact but totally functional. The room and the bathroom both had windows overlooking a quiet residential street. Around the corner were several eateries, bakeries and great restaurants. Half a block away was the Pernety station.

This area is fantastic because it is so authentic. It is not overloaded with tourists but it is still very convenient. People are friendly and you have your choice of Bakeries every morning on your way to the metro stop.

If I was to return to Paris tomorrow, I would most definitely book a room here!

Room Tip: Any room is great because the street is not a busy one and it will not be noisy.

This hotel is great, confortable, beautiful, clean, well located and close to the subway, everyone at the reception desk is nice and helpful. It is small and does not have the rush of the big hotels. I highly recommend.
Este hotel é ótimo, confortável, bonito, limpo, bem localizado e perto do metro, todo pessoal da recepção é atencioso e prestativo. É pequeno e não tem a correria dos grandes hotéis. Eu recomendo.

A very nice colorful small hotel in a quarter of Paris.
The staff was exceptionally friendly and very helpful.
Rooms were clean. For two people small but adequate for a 3-4 days city trip.
All in all one of the best hotels for that Prise I've sleeped in in Paris.
I'll come back!
Absolutely recommendable!

This was the third time we had visited this hotel. In between times we tried to book but they were full and we ended up elsewhere in an overpriced smelly dump.

This is a bijou hotel which is quirky but clean and nice with nice people and a nice breakfast.

The lift is so small that both of us and our suitcase could only just fit in but that was fine. The rooms are small but in keeping with all other hotels in this category.

I have only two [small] complaints - there are no tv channels in English as per most other hotels, and the heating timer needs adjusted - we came in to the room at 1.00am and you could have fried eggs on the radiator! We turned it off and opened the window. I think they should fit stats to all the rads so that clients can adjust to suit. It would probably save them money too!

Always book a room at the rear of the hotel as the street side can be noisy at night.

One other thing - the shower was fantastic - great deluge of hot water at a great pressure!

There is no doubt in our minds that we will return!

Room Tip: Room 42 was great, but always ask for a room to the rear
